  The 454 Wizard
   
Here's the Wizard in his home territory - the 454 vertical amplifier. The 454 was quite a big leap in performance over the 453 from which it was derived. To get 150 MHz vertical bandwidth, someone suggested that magic was required - thus the wizard. He appeared in the parts list too, but unfortunately if you burned out your wizard you were out of luck, as he was unreplaceable.

There was a bit of magic in the 454 vertical amp. Just ask anyone who ever calibrated one!
